Milagro, which in translation means Miracle, is a small town located in Ecuador. In the month of March, the rain season fell hard and heavy storms led to serious floods throughout the country. During the winter period it is not common for some locals to lose their homes and, unfortunately, loved ones. But although this experience seems shocking and somewhat traumatizing, the people exhibit strength and fortitude. They look beyond their current circumstance and see the beauty in the disaster. Using this mindset, my journey was to see how we can look beyond the chaos of life and focus on the miracle at hand – life.
